Release Notes Errata

The following tasks were fixed, but omitted from the release notes:

Upgrade Instructions

New Sandbox.WebHome is included

The upgrade packages include the Sandbox.WebHome topic. If you have a customized Sandbox WebHome topic, the upgrade package will overlay it.

New setting needed for PatternSkin

If PatternSkin is installed on an older Foswiki, or the Foswiki-upgrade package is used to upgrade an existing Foswiki system, there is a new required setting that must be added to Main.SitePreferences.
   * Set PATTERNSKIN_JQUERY_THEME = PatternSkinTheme
The new System.DefaultPreferences topic shipped with the upgrade package does have this setting, but if you have customized you DefaultPreferences, then this needs to be added.

Also, you'll need to go through one save cycle of configure to register the new JQuery pattern theme in the configuration. (If configure reports no changes, make a minor change and save again, and configure will merge in the changed settings). Or edit the LocalSite.cfg file by hand and add
$Foswiki::cfg{JQueryPlugin}{Themes}{PatternSkinTheme}{Url} = '$Foswiki::cfg{PubUrlPath}/$Foswiki::cfg{SystemWebName}/PatternSkinTheme/jquery-ui.css';
$Foswiki::cfg{JQueryPlugin}{Themes}{PatternSkinTheme}{Enabled} = 1;

Other important things to know.

Most extensions released with Foswiki 1.1.6 have converted to formal perl version strings. version->declare('v1.1.6'). The PatchFoswikiContrib must be installed on older versions of Foswiki before installing any of these extensions on older Foswiki versions. Note that they have not been tested on Foswiki 1.0

Installation

Please refer to the INSTALL.html which can be found the downloaded tgz/zip. It can be also found on Foswiki.org in the System.InstallationGuide

Upgrade Instructions

In-place upgrade from any release prior to Foswiki 1.1.0 is not recommended. Older Foswiki installations should install Foswiki as a new release, configure, and then migrate data to the new installation.
  • See System.UpgradeGuide for details on upgrading from older versions of Foswiki
  • See System.SystemRequirements for the latest System Requirements.
  • Be sure to take a backup!
  • The upgrade packages excludes files "commonly" modified, for example, WebHome, WebPreferences, AdminGroup, etc. If your installation has modified other topics, or template files, those updates will be lost!
  • If you use tar, then you can extract the upgrade package on top of your installation by using:
    cd /var/www/foswiki
    tar --strip-components=1 -zxf /path/to/Foswiki-upgrade-2.0.x.tgz
